At TPPA, Our Focus is on Photographers!

A Message From TPPA

Extraordinary times call for extraordinary decisions and TPPA has several important announcements about our upcoming TPPA Events and our upcoming TPPA Annual Photographic Competition. Please read the following carefully.
March TPPA Events
TPPA will be postponing these upcoming events in order to protect our members, speakers and the community:
  • “Photographing Newborns” in Cypress
  • The Two-Day “CPP Study Class” in Dallas/Fort Worth
  • The “San Antonio Studio Crawl”
  • The “TPPA Leadership Training Class” in San Antonio
We will be working to set up new dates as quickly as we can. Please bear with us.
The TPPA Annual Photographic Competition
TPPA will move forward with our Annual Image Competition with a few new caveats:
  • There will be no spectators invited to watch the competition live
  • You will be able to follow scoring on the PrintCompetition.com platform, but without audio
  • Audio will be available following the competition in a 1-3 days
  • The deadline to enter the competition has been set back one day, to March 26 at 7:00PM
  • We plan to run two panels, so we will do our best to let you know which room your images are in via the printcompetition.com platform
Moving Forward
TPPA plans to bring additional content and education to our members, online via our GoToMeeting platform and our TPPA365 community. We are busy preparing programs and guests to help us work through these unprecedented circumstances. We look forward to letting you know about these opportunities in the coming days and weeks.
We appreciate your trust and your loyalty to TPPA.

TPPA Executive Director
